Adam Aircraft Announces Price for M-309 Composite Aircraft

Adam Aircraft kicked off the year 2001 by announcing that it will offer the first 20 production M-309 twin- engine aircraft at an introductory price of $695,000. The M-309’s price includes a full glass panel of avionics with instrument flight capability and plush interior seating for six in a pressurized cabin. “This is a major milestone for us,” said John C. Knudsen, president of Adam Aircraft. “Invariably, when someone is interested in the Adam M-309, the first question they ask is ‘What’s the price?’ Now we have a solid price to offer that is extremely competitive with anything that could be considered our competition. We’re very exited to be able to offer such an attractive price. Most people thought it would be much higher.” The centerline-thrust, “push-pull” configuration with Teledyne Continental TSIO 550 engines in the nose and tail of the Adam M-309 is engineered with the latest advancements in safety, aerodynamics and performance. Although the in-line design is not entirely new, engineering convention considers this a safer aircraft to fly because the failure of one engine has very little effect on aircraft performance compared to an engine failure on a conventional twin- engine plane. The advanced, single-cure carbon composite technology incorporated into the Adam M-309 affords a sleek, efficient design, creating a superior performing aerodynamic surface. Along with being corrosion free, composite materials used for the Adam M-309 also result in a larger inside cabin size with the same outside mold line.
